News   Eric Comstock and Barbara Fasano Will Bring A New York Soundtrack to the Oak Room
 
The husband-and-wife performing team of Eric Comstock and Barbara Fasano will return to the Oak Room Supper Club Jan. 4-15, 2011, with a new cabaret show, Helluva Town: A New York Soundtrack.

Performances will take place Tuesdays-Thursdays at 8:30 PM and Fridays and Saturdays at 8:30-11 PM at the Oak Room's home in the Algonquin Hotel.

Sean Smith will accompany the couple on bass as they take audiences through "the love/hate affair" which they and most other New Yorkers have with the city, according to press notes. The mix of musical theatre, pop and jazz tunes will include songs by Leonard Bernstein, Rodgers and Hart, Comden and Green, Charles Strouse & Lee Adams, Cy Coleman and Carolyn Leigh, Paul Simon, Joni Mitchell, Horace Silver, Jon Hendricks, Harry Warren, Billy Strayhorn, and Bacharach and David.

Musicals represented in song will include On the Town, 42nd Street, Golden Boy, Thoroughly Modern Millie, Sweet Smell of Success and Promises, Promises.

Comstock and Fasano received the 2010 Nightlife Award as Outstanding Cabaret Duo, adding to the three MAC Awards they previously received in one year, including Best Vocal Duo, Outstanding Female Vocalist and Record of the Year (for Fasano’s CD “Written in the Stars”). They have performed, both separately and together, at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Feinstein's, The Carlyle and Birdland.

Comstock, who created and starred in the revues Singing Astaire, Made for the Movies and Our Sinatra, recently released the album "bitter/sweet." Fasano has appeared in productions of Wonderful Town, Grease and Side By Side By Sondheim. Her fourth CD, based on her solo show "Roundabout," will be released in 2011. The Algonquin Hotel is located at 59 West 44th Street. There is a $50 cover charge per person plus either a $30 food and beverage minimum per person or a $60 prix fixe dinner.
